Another question, itemized or not would they still come out the same either way. Because I've tried keeping all receipts this time, kept mileage, tried to keep track on everything. The car maintenance as oil change I wanted to ask someone on the receipt it would says sales tax deductible and the amount that I'm being charged. Can I use that sales tax as part of my deductions? I don't want to sound stupid I don't really know tax. The person I try to ask last year wasn't very helpful, so I didn't bother asking.
